They’ve made it through time, and they’ve gone through hell, but lately it has seemed like Bill S. Preston (Esquire) and Ted Theodore Logan have remained stuck in development hell. A third Bill & Ted movie has long been rumored, but we’ve heard very little regarding whether or not the project would ever materialize. As it turns out, not only will we get a third Bill & Ted movie, but that movie will reunite Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves after almost 25 years.
During a recent interview with Forbes, Alex Winter explained that if Bill & Ted 3 does in fact get made, Keanu Reeves will almost certainly be involved. As he so eloquently puts it:
How the fuck would we make it if he wasn’t on board? People always ask if Keanu’s doing it and I’m like, ‘No, I’m making a Bill movie.’ Of course he’s in it. I can’t make a Bill & Ted movie without Keanu.
Considerably more work has gone into the third Bill & Ted movie than we would have thought. When asked about whether or not work had been done on a potential script, Alex Winter revealed that a top-notch script had already been written, and now it’s just a matter of getting started on production. The film is in – as Winter describes it – a "pre-prep" phase.
Due to the overall iconography of the Bill & Ted series, the film will likely feature more than just Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves in terms of star power. Winters admitted during his interview with Forbes that Bill & Ted 3 will feature some awesome cameos, but he wouldn’t provide any details beyond that. We’re just sad that George Carlin is no longer around to party on with Bill and Ted as Rufus.
